General Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Don't expect to be offered great contracts early on - your airport will need to earn some reputation before bigger contracts are made available.

Construction Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Plan your Airport thoroughly before starting to construct it.

Roads, Service Roads and Taxiways[edit | edit source]

  • Make sure to connect roads with side-walks and cross-walks.
  • Try not to make a design which requires crossing taxiways, it causes path-finding problems in some cases.
  • Cross-walk connecting two side-walks/stops. These are necessary to enable path-finding across roads.

  • Side-walk is necessary for objects to move out of Terminal/stands.

Security[edit | edit source]

Main article: Security
  • The Secure Zone should be connected by proper Security Checkpoints and Exits, else the passengers won't board, staff won't go to work, and basically your airport would be useless/broken.
    Use the security checkpoints and Exits for all zone changes.

Stands[edit | edit source]

  • Be sure to connect the stands to taxiways.
  • The stands that you intend to use for commercial should be built attached to the terminals. Also they should be configured for Commercial use (Click it).
  • GA stands can be built anywhere on the map.. just make sure they have a taxiway and service road connection.
  • After construction, use the Taxiway Node tool to make a path from Runway(s) to all stands.

Baggage[edit | edit source]

Main article: Baggage
  • Baggage system requires a bit of effort to design.
  • The area around baggage bays should be zoned as secure in order for ramp agents to find it.
  • The more ramp agents you hire (up to a point) the faster your baggage will get processed.

Budget[edit | edit source]

  • Contractors are paid for as long as they are in service. Dismissing excess contractors once their work is done will reduce expenses.
  • Larger stores will generate more revenue from rent.
  • Keeping passengers happy will ensure that they want to spend money in shops.
